Community Groups

We believe life should be lived in community.

We are designed for community!

God intends for us to share life together with others who are also seeking to grow with Him. This is why community groups are an essential part of church life at Fellowship, and why we encourage everyone to find community.

The Deeper Podcast

What Is Community?

At Fellowship, we define community as the body of Christ living out the gospel together. We define a community group as a group of people joyfully sharing life as they find and follow Jesus Christ. It is spending regular time with others in a home, public space, or at a workplace. Community is time in God’s word, enjoying fellowship, caring for the needs of one another, loving our neighbors, and holding each other accountable for growing as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

What Does
Community Look Like?

Groups come in all shapes and sizes - married/engaged couples, singles, men’s, women’s, with kids, without kids, and more! No matter where you are or who you are, you can start in a new community group with a few of your friends or we will help you find an existing group.

How do I find community?

You and a few friends is the fastest and easiest way to get started in a community group. We naturally live our lives forming communities, gathering those you are already doing life with make for the most effective way to start a community group! Let us know of your interest in You and a Few by emailing jwynne@fbctopeka.com and we’ll help you get started by equipping and resourcing you!

In addition to the weekend worship services, there are opportunities to meet other believers and develop relationships through LifeCare classes, learning environments, Bible studies, worship nights, or other events that we have at the church throughout the week. You can explore all current opportunities through the events tab or by visiting a particular ministry from the ministries tab!

Whether you are new to Fellowship, new to the area, or just not sure where to start, we facilitate an event called *Group-Link* in the fall and spring where groups looking to grow or start up can come together and connect with those looking to get into a group!

Have a desire to lead?

We all need someone to lead us - whether at work, at home, or in the church. Community groups are no different. Each community group needs someone to coordinate your time together, facilitate discussion, and to pray for and care for the group. A Fellowship community group leader helps foster a welcoming environment where people can grow in relationship with Jesus and with one another.
